Polar Ice Cap

Dec
16

It’s snowing, snowing, snowing today. Again. I think this is the most snow I’ve seen this early (before winter has even, technically, started) since I moved to West Virginia.


Poky can’t believe it.

But she does like her snow cap!

Everybody’s covered in snow.

But they come out long enough to eat.

And play.

And groom. Because even if it’s snowing, it’s important to look pretty.

If you’re a duck.

    So beautiful Suzanne. It’s like that in Huntington too and my critters are covered as well. Stay warm.

    I’m a little north of you and were getting hit too. It was unexpected to hit this far north. Nowhere to go so I am loving it!

    A friend in the Fairfax area of Virginia has about 2 inches and it is still snowing. I wouldn’t mind having some of that here instead of the flooding we had last weekend. I love snow!

    Well Suzanne, I live in Oregon and we had snow in Nove. before Thanksgiving. We are very muddy and have NO snow, Thank you Lord, but sunshine here, I’ll see if God will pour some on you when I pray.
    Father in heaven, there are parts of this glorious country who would like a share of our sunshine you have graced us with. Would you please share with them also, in Jesus Name, Amen

    It IS pretty! I’m hoping it hits us but it may go out to sea :(

    Especially when you’re a white duck, and all that white snow makes you look not so white!

    Polar cap indeed! In Mercer County, West Virginia, we already have 5 days of school closed, 3 days of delayed opening and where we live over 4 ft of snow. C’mon first day of winter, we need a break!

    I found and loved your blog for the first time this summer. It never occurred to me then how awesome it would be in the winter! I love Pokey.

    Oh those poor little snow-laden animals! I know they’re warmer than they look, but still…

    Ooh, poor Poky, with the icicle hanging off her eyelid! All the animals look really cold, but they have lots of warm fur or feathers to keep them warm.
    I am sure lots of cookies will help too!

    Poor Poky! She looks like an icicle. Can you give the hot chocolate instead of water? No?

    I wonder what real winter will bring?

    Our little 1/2 inch snow is almost gone and we are back up to 38°.

    Oh oh oh, I love these photos!!!! Whenever I get a glimpse of Boomer, it’s a happy day. I see he’s busying himself. That 4th photo is fabulous, and the last. Beautiful. Thanks for sharing Suzanne. Lovely day.

    I know what you mean about the snow. We’ve got so much on top of what we already had, that I’ve lost count.

    Brr, looks cold. And wintery. It’s beautiful, but I hope your roads will be clear soon. Good thing you stocked up early. Got plenty of aluminum foil?

    Even covered in snow I want to cuddle all of them.

    My goats refuse to leave their house. Seriously, there has been snow on the ground for two weeks and the only goat prints are one set that go all of a foot past the roof edge. They are so spoiled.

    The weather looks just like that here too, Suzanne. School was closed today.
    The animals look so cute covered in snow. I love Pokey’s snow bonnet :)
    Wonderful photos, and oh, what a nice, clean, and very pretty duck!
    Congratulations of winning the photo competition!! :sheep:

    Our goats do not like the snow and are very vocal about how they feel. LOL

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
